Understanding the system

Like individual schools graded earlier, Oklahoma school districts were given scores on a 4-point scale that translates to letter grades as follows:

A: 3.75-4.00

B: 2.75-3.74

C: 1.75-2.74

D: 0.75-1.74

F: 0.00-0.75

The scores consist of four weighted categories:

• Student achievement (33 percent)

• Whole-school performance (33 percent)

• Overall student growth (17 percent)

• Bottom 25 percent growth (17 percent)

By the numbers

• 526: Districts graded

• 2: Districts receiving a grade of F

• 42: Districts receiving a grade of D

• 243: Districts receiving a grade of C

• 216: Districts receiving a grade of B

• 23: Districts receiving a grade of A

• 13: Districts receiving a score of 4.0. They are: Amber-Pocasset (Grady County); Arapaho-Butler (Custer County); Big Pasture (Cotton County); Bishop (Comanche County); Canadian (Pittsburg County); Central High (Stephens County); Cottonwood (Coal County); McCord (Osage County); Mulhall-Orlando (Logan County); Reydon (Roger Mills County); Ripley (Payne County); Robin Hill (Cleveland County); and Waynoka (Woods County).
